Following the July release of his new mixtape ‘Angel’s Pulse’, arriving a year after Blood Orange’s most successful record ‘Negro Swan’, Dev Hynes has now shared the visuals to mixtape standout ‘Dark & Handsome’.
Locking into ’80s aesthetics, the glossy new vid mirrors the track’s lush sounds, and features Toro Y Moi - aka Chaz Bear - who pops up via iPhone FaceTime during the vid.
Speaking on his new ‘Angel’s Pulse’ project, Dev explained:
“My new record is called ‘Angel’s Pulse’ & I performed, produced and mixed the entire thing myself. I’m calling it a mixtape.
I have a habit through the years of making records that I just give to friends, or on tape to people on the street, or no one. Usually this material is made directly after the album I’ve just put out. Somewhat of an epilogue to the thing I’ve made before. This time.. I decided to release it.
I put as much work and care into it as I do with the albums I’ve released, but for some reason trained myself into not releasing things the rate at which I make them. I’m older now though, and life is unpredictable and terrifying… so here you go mates.
Hope you enjoy. Catch you soon.
Devonté aka Blood Orange.”
